General information

Major Requirements

As a student majoring in art history, you will begin with courses that survey the arts of Asia, Europe, and America. More specialized lecture courses and proseminars follow in global art and visual culture from ancient times to the present day.

You are also encouraged to complement the major with advanced work in related disciplines such as classics, religion, history, philosophy, literature, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies and foreign languages.  Contact the undergraduate staff advisors Julie McGilvray and Barbara Olivier for more information about the major.

Emphasis in Architectural History follows the same requirements as for the Art History major, applying at least six of the following courses to their respective required areas or as electives:  Art History 25, 110, 120A, 155, 163A, 168, 172A, 172B, 173, 175, 176A, 176B, 176C, 178B, 178C, 184, 187, 188A, 188B. Fulfilling the undergraduate seminar requirement (Art History 190A-L) through an architectural topic is highly recommended.

Students are strongly urged to participate in internships (AHI 192) in order to broaden their knowledge and experience in the world of Art History. Go to the Internship and Career Center site for information.
